The support continues for Joe Biden in the 2020 US Election, following chaotic debate
The first US Presidential debate happened in the early hours of this morning and punters have been quick to react.
In the lead up to the debates, Biden had been more popular in the market, but has that trend continued since the first debate?
It certainly has, with Biden’s odds cut across the board following the debate.
The former Vice-President was cut into as short 8/13 from 8/11 throughout the early morning.
Trump, in turn, has drifted out to 11/8 since the debate finished.
In the last six hours on oddschecker, 55% of users have backed Biden, compared to just 40% backing Trump.
Despite Biden shortening throughout the last month, Trump had been the more popular out of the two on oddschecker. However, that trend has been bucked.
Not a whole deal of policy was discussed by either man. Rather, there was plenty of bickering but neither Trump or Biden landed any knockout blows.
The market suggests Biden has come out on top though. He didn’t do his reputation any harm and dispelled any worries that he would struggle during the debate.
Trump will have hoped to see Biden slip up more throughout the 90 minute long debate but no huge errors came from Biden.
Before the debate, Biden was the odds-on favourite to win the CNN poll on the debate winner. He won this comfortably in the end, securing 60% of the vote.
Biden has edged further ahead in the bid to become the new President, but Trump is far from out of it yet.
